Assembly Swings Open Board Doors By MELODY CRAWLEY "I certainly see no problem as far as one board is concerned in complying. Although our board has not had open meetings in the past, some limited resources that I have indicated that we probably have had a larger number of faculty and student groups attend board meetings in order to address specific topics of interest than any other board." This was President Henry I. Willett, Jr.'s comment on the passage of legislation by the 1979 General Assembly to open the meetings of state college boards of visitors to the public. The bill was passed in both houses with only one floor amendment added in the senate. This allowed high school competency tests scores to remain confidential. The same amendment, proposed by Sen. John C. Buchanan (D -Wisei will also allow the Board of Education to refuse to disclose teacher competence tests scores. The

amendment does not affect the board of visitors, but is included in this bill because both actions deal with FOIA. There should be no problem with Governor John Dalton signing the bill he had supported opening the board of visitors meetings during his campaign, saying that they annually spend hundreds of millions of dollars of taxpayers' money. The bill patroned by Del. A.R. Gieson ( R-Staunton), ammended the Virginia Freedom of Information Act. Prior to the passing of the bill, the act had been inapplicable to the board of visitors. According to the Richmond Times Dispatch, Sen. James T. Edmunds (D-Lunenburg i noted that the boards were still opposed to it. He concluded that they are simply reluctant to change the way they do business. Virginia was the only to exempt the boards from the Freedom of Information Act.

Under this bill, the legislature also provided for a number of situations in which the boards can go into executive session in order to consider specific matters. These include: discussion of employment including salary matters and promotions, disciplinary matters concerning any student of any

state institution of higher learning, the acquisition or disposition of real property for public use, protection of the privacy of individuals in personal matters, consultation with legal counsel, and discussion of matters relating to gifts, bequests and fund-raising activities.

The passage of this bill is seen as a major step forward in communication between not only faculty and administration but students as well. The law will be in effect as of July 1. 1979, which will not open the Ixmgwood College Board of Visitor's meetings this week.

Questions Answered At Head Table By JUDI STANLEY Do you have a question or complaint concerning regulations or events at Longwood? Do you feel uncomfortable voicing these feelings in a structured meeting of one of the student boards? If so, you should take advantage of a program offered by the student government; this program is the Head Table. The Head Table meets every Tuesday from 12 to 1 p.m. in the dining hall. The students that are seated at this table are the chairmen and vice-chairmen of Judicial, Residence, and Legislative Boards, Chairman of

Intramural Activities Association, and Co-Editors of The Rotunda. These students are open to any type of question or complaint about regulations and activities. They will answer questions and take complaints before the respective boards. Wanda Peterson, Chairman of Legislative Board, states, "it (the Head Table) would be useful to the students and a successful program if the students would use it," but she says that "this year it hasn't been used at all" or at least its use has been minimal. The next head table meets today (January 30) from 12 noon to 1 p.m.

Pre-Dawn Fire Leaves Girls Homeless

By PAULA JOHNSON Six off-campus students lost most of their belongings in a house fire last Friday morning. The house, located at 309 Franklin Street, is owned by Dr. Anita Ernouf, chairman of the Foreign language department here. Accroding to Farmville Fire Chief Philip Gay, the fire appeared to have caught from a malfunction of the furnace. Extensive damage was done to the interior of the house. "Everybody concerned was lucky to have gotten out of there," stated Chief Gay. The fire occurred around 2:42 a.m. January 19. The rooms were filled with smoke and flames were coming through the walls when the girls' pet dog, "Bifur," woke them. In the house at the time were Kym Gilbert, Cindy Thomas, Cindy Smith, Meg Cook, Bonnie Briggs, and Kim Keleher. "You never can believe what an experience it can be without going through it," Miss Thomas said. "We have to offer all the thanks in the world to Dean Heintz." The girls have since Leaders of various boards gather for availability for students found a new home for the Deeds. Photo by Linda Shanahan remainder of the semester.

Miss Smith and Miss Keleher lost most of their possessions. The others sustained somewhat less property damage. Anyone

Standing Room Only At Dr. Flynn Lecture By JEANNE TRIMBLE Bedford Building is usually rather quiet on a Wednesday night. Isolated at the far end of the campus, it is normally only occupied at night by a sprinkling of art majors at work on projects, but this does not develop into a rain until mid-semester. An unusually large number of people were welcomed by Bedford and the Art Department staff on the night of January 17. If you are an art or a math major you will be more likely to know of the event which took place in Bedford Wednesday night. Dr. Elizabeth Flynn, the Art

History Professor of the Art Department, lectured to a standing room only audience in Bedford Auditorium. The atmosphere was relaxed, the audience consisted of students, faculty, and members of the community. The relationship between art and mathematics was the topic of her presentation. According to Dr. Flynn, the artist is intimately involved with his world. She approached her subject from an historical perspective, beginning with Polykleitos (455-440 B.C.), a Greek, continuing through the Italian Renaissance to conclude

with contemporary artists and artistic movements such as M.C. Escher, I.M. Pei, and computer art. Respective artists and their works were chosen to exemplify the developments in art discussed by Dr. Flynn. A few of those featured were The Hagia Sophia (Anthemius of Tralles, Isidorus of Miletus), the Parthenon (Callicrates), St. Peter's and the Bernini Colonnade in Rome (Gianlorenzo Bernini), and Piet Mondrian, a Dutch painter known for the geometric simplicity of his work. Dr. Flynn utilized slides of the paintings, architecture and sculpture covered during the lecture. Dr. Flynn opened her lecture with the comment that she was not a mathematician (a fact appreciated by many of those in attendance). However, sheproposed that math is not only numbers, but the purity of logical reasoning and the relationship of parts to a whole. Her lecture was extremely informative, clear and enjoyable, even for those of us who were neither Art or Math majors.

Pageant Plans Underway By SHARON JANOVICH It's almost here! Mark your calendars — the Miss Ix>ngwood Pageant is on its way, and will be held at 8 p.m., on March 10 in Jarman auditorium. The twelve contestants in this year's pageant are June Harris, Carol Brooks, Andrea Mott, Anita Hed, Venetia Raines, Julie Worsham, Cindy Carneal, Cindy Jones, Iiz Jones, Ellen Hitt. Carol Mclntosh and Jane Bruce Each contestant will be escorted by 12 Ixmgwood men throughout the pageant. Each girl vying for the Miss Ixmgwood 1979 will present herself in bathing suit and

evening competition, have an interview with the pageant judges, dress to suit her personality and present her talent. On Saturday afternoon before the pageant there will be a cocktail party held in I^ankford, to enable the parents of the contestants to met with the pageant committee, other contestants and pageant judges. The pageant committee meets every Thursday at 12:45 in the Board of Visitors room. Suggestions from the student body are welcome. If anyone is interested in working with the pageant, come to the meeting in the Board room!

Colleagues '79Chosen Soon By BETH PARROTT So you want to be a colleague! What's the next step—an application9 Well not exactly, first, you must weigh the responsibilities. They include working on committees planning, orientation week, getting yourself ready (outfit, gifts, early arrival, smiling faces, familiarizing yourself with the rules), and helping your group. But your responsibilities do not end after orientation, it also includes working CHI booths at the interest fair and Oktoberfest,

working information booths at Spring week end, and preparing for next year's colleagues with fund raising and tapping ceremonies. It is not all work though. You have to remember how much fun it was to have your colleague, orientation leader, student assistant, RA, Head Resident and BSU buddy greet you on your first day at college. Join the fun! Colleagues '79 will be chosen from applications taken during this week until Monday, February 5 at 12 noon.

Second place went to the Juniors' sister Red-and-White Class, the Freshmen. Judges for the event were Dr. Lovard E. Egbert Jr., Miss Denise I. McDonough, Miss Ruth L. Budd and Dr. Merry Lewis Allen. This year's theme was Red and Green. The themes are alternated each year and according to tradition, next year's theme will be Blue and White.

Tabb Door Secured This area was being used as a thorough fare by just anyone who did not want the slight inconvenience of taking the outside route to the gym or French dormitory. Stephens says that he found the lack of privacy in Tabb "totally dehumanizing." He also went so far as to say that he would not have blamed any of the girls living there if they had wished to quit school due to this problem. Now that the lock has been installed, the situation has improved immeasurably. Former trespassers through Tabb have discovered that the alternate ways to their destinations are not as bad as they thought, and the girls of Tabb now have the privacy enjoyed by those living in other dorms. Stephens has been criticized by some for perhaps creating a fire hazard with the locking of this door. Stephens calls this charge "ridiculous." He stated that Tabb has all the fire doors it is required to have and that the fire marshall has approved the securing of the hall door.

Mardi Gras Weekend: Bigger And Better By DONNA HASK Y This year's annual Mardi Gras Weekend promises to rival even the New Orleans' celebration in terms of fun, music, entertainment and excitement. The four-day weekend begins officially on Thursday night at 8 p.m. in the Gold Room with the music of Nina Kahle. A top rate pianist whose down-to-earth songs let the true performer's personality shine through, Nina easily captivates and holds her audience's attention. A multitalented entertainer, she moves easily from piano to dulcimer without losing a listener. Admission for Longwood students is 75c and guests are $1.00. However, on Wednesday night for those of you who have not inherited a family business, finding a job is often a difficult undertaking. The job market is tough, and according to career consultant Ellen Perry, if you are to succeed in finding the right job, you must be even tougher. Mrs. Perry will discuss the job market and the problems confronting a prospective employee, such as stereotypes, salary traps, preparing resumes, the hidden job market, and the all-important interview. Mrs. Perry will give two lectures on Wednesday, Jan. 31. The first is entitled "Job Power for Women," and will be held at 3:30 p.m. in the Lankford AB rooms. I^ater that evening, at 8 p.m. in Wygal Auditorium, Mrs. Perry will address herself to a more general overview of the job market in a presentation of "Guerrilla Tactics in the Job Market," The Student Union and the Ixmgwood Office of Placement Services are both sponsoring

Mrs. Perry's visit and invite all interested students to attend. Friday, February 2 will begin with the graceful moves of the Dayton Ballet Company. The second oldest Regional Ballet Company in the United States, the Dayton Ballet performs annually at National Association for Regional Ballet Festivals in the U. S. and in Canada. Their performance will begin at 8 p.m. in Jarman Auditorium and is free of charge. Later Friday night, after the ballet, the mood will change with the advent of a late night Beer and Pizza Party in the lower dining hall. Beverages and Pizza Hut Pizza will be sold, but the main attractions will be the fantastic fiddle of Mike Cross and the "wild and crazy" humor of comedian Tom Parks. The musical half of the duo, Cross, combines country, blues, and oldtime, backwoods tunes into an energetic and fun-filled show. He has appeared in concert with such country music stars as Earl Scruggs, Lester Flatt, Doc Watson and the New Riders of the Purple Sage. Quite a switch for a young man who began college on a golf scholarship and dreamed of becoming a pro golfer — now, it is apparent that Mike holds his own as a professional musician. Adding his own zany touch to the evening will be comedian Tom Parks who has livened up Longwood audiences in the past. His own special brand of humor soon has his entire audience laughing as never before, as he brings the events in each person's life — from comedy to the tragic — into a completely different (and laughable) light. Admission for Friday night is $1.00 for Longwood students and $1.50 for

Organist And Trumpeter To Be Presented From Public Relations The Longwood College department of music will present Thomas Swan, organist, and Charles Lirette, trumpeter, in a Visiting Artist Recital February 4, at 7:30 p.m. in the Farmville United Methodist Church.

If the name seems vaguely familiar, you're remembering the original group Gypsy which disbanded in the midst of a growing popularity, lead singer James Walsh decided in 1976 to form a new Gypsy while keeping the musical sound that had been so popular. The result is an eight man band that effectively combines guitars, keyboard, bass, trumpet, horns, piccolo and drums with strong vocal harmonies to bring back a sound that couldn't die. Admission for the concert will be $3.00 for Longwood students and $4.00 for (Continued on Page 8)

Campus School Art On Exhibit From Public Realtions A great variety of art work by students at Wynne Campus School is on exhibit in the Lancaster Library Gallery through February 24. The show vibrates with color, youthful enthusiasm and freshness. It also demonstrates the scope and careful structuring of Mrs. Jackie Wall's art instruction which introduces concepts and techniques and then builds upon them in a continuing program from the kindergarten level through seventh grade. An immediate eye-catcher in the exhibit is a group of "pop art" works by seventh graders. These large stuffed sculptures, made of paper, are examples of how the pop artist 'takes an everyday object and makes it a monument." Included are a football helmet, pair of scissors, cheeseburger, pencil, wrist watch, golf club and ball, and a slice of pizza. Mrs. Wall explained that the seventh grade has been engaged in an examination of contemporary art forms and how the artist is a mirror of his times. She suggested to her students that "perhaps the artists of today are trying to tell us that we are becoming object' worshiDDers." A group of oil pastels by fifth graders is entitled "Camouflaging the Domestic Cat." The children painted from live models (Mrs. Wall's cat and several friends who came to visit in the art room), but the major emphasis of the assignment was to "create visual harmony between the cat and his environment." Some of the most vivid paintings resulted from the assignment to design record jackets for a new rock group. The

FROM THE EDITOR... "A Town of Farmville Ordinance, effective February 1. 1979, designates the north side of High Street for two hour parking only and restricts parking on several streets north of the campus ' Buffalo, Garden, Beech, and Randolph - residential portion, and St George) to residents only.'* The above announcement, which appeared in last Friday's Daily Bulletin, concerns many of us on campus. In light of the present parking situation here, this creates more problems for both faculty and day students. The request made by Campus Police for day students to park in the Wygal-Lankford lot is a nuisance as well as a hinderance. Many day students have classes meeting in Grainger, East and West Kuffner. French, and Hiner buildings. Approximately three blocks of walking is not the ideal way to start off a morning — especially if one is late for that first early morning class. The

True, nothing in the school handbook says that any person is required to have the decency to support their soon-to-be alma mater. But it is a sad note indeed that a person would discriminate against someone because of his beliefs and-or level in the social strata.

faculty, if they were designated this parking lot, may share these same feelings. While parking is still allowed from High Street to the first residence on Randolph Street, these places are quickly taken by the staff, faculty, and/or administration arriving early. The administration had made a possible decision of enlarging the parking lot behind Jarman Auditorium. At the expense of Wheeler Mall, this decision is, in some respects, an unwise one. In an age when the beauty of nature is destroyed by mans want of absolutes, students of Wheeler and Cox dormitories may rebel against this action. We begin to wonder if one day this campus will one day be one huge parking lot. We are allowed to question if this ordinance is legal, considering that this parking is designated for residents of the particular area even stating only two hour parking for non-residents. Town Council members W. B. Wall, Thomas N. Layne, and Mary Ellen Munoz were most helpful to the college in trying to prevent this ordinance from being passed, but to no avail. Could it be that Farmvilles police force is in need of something to do? In this case, they may have found their solution. PEJ

Science Major Active On Campus

Stubbs Stadium? Dear Editor, We are expressing our concern about the mess which has been made of Stubbs Mall. What once was a beautiful, green iawn now at first glance looks like a muddy cattle field, all because of the football games which occur daily, rain or shine. We do not want to deprive these "Athletes" of their game, but there are athletic fields intended for this purpose, which are not in use at the time they usually play. In addition, this hinders use of the sidewalk. We residents of Stubbs either must wait until a play is over, or risk being physically injured by being part of the play. We feel this is totally unnecessary because the sidewalk is to be used for walking, not a 50 yard line! Spring is coming, and we would like to see a green lawn, not a brown one. We hope you, the players, will take the above points into thought, and go play elsewhere. Sue Delong Robin Belcher Judy Kusterer Susan Gray Rhonda Brown Tricia Whitehurst

His article could only encourage other pranks of the same nature by people anxious to see their cute little tricks put in a humorous light by The Rotunda.

Here she would work toward earning her M.A. degree and possibly her Ph.D. Miss Stark feels that her education at Longwood has "reasonably prepared" her for her future plans. She does wish she had the opportunity to experience a large university in terms of course offerings. Maturity and leadership are two qualities which Miss Stark says she has obtained from IxMigwood. She has certainly used these qualities in her services to the college and to her major department. Cox, it would naturally be associated with the dorm. I didn't really expect anyone who lived there to shoulder the responsibility for the event. If any of those in the science department took offense and thought that treating the matter in a humorous way would only encourage such pranks in the future, I can only say that, with a little logic, they would have realized that passing it off as a joke was the only way to convince the evil-doers that they had served no purpose except to make fools of themselves, but I refuse to twist anybody's arm to make them see things from my point of view. I also apologize for the number of bad jokes that have come out of this outrage (more than you can count on the fingers of both hands, if you have both hands). To all of those who came up with worse puns than I did, well, I've really got to hand it to you. But, I've still got an armful of them to (Continued on Page 8)

Walking May By DEBBIE NORTHERN Ixmgwood is composed primarily of in-state students who are oblivious to the tenuous plight of out-of-state students attempts to return to college

after holidays. Well, it is time everyone is enlightened. My enlightenment abruptly came about on Sunday, January 7. I had effortlessly flown from Richmond to Newark, New

Tom Willis will play Hamlet in the Longwood Players next production.

Hamlet Production Draws Near From Department of Speech and Drama With opening night drawing nearer, the cast and crews of the Longwood Players-Department of Speech and Dramatic Arts' production of HAMLET are experiencing that inevitable surge of excitement that precedes the opening night curtain. Lines are learned, sets are completed, the elaborate lighting effects that create transitions and establish moods are being polished, and costumes are being trimmed and fitted. Four and a half weeks of preparation are coming to a close. When Dr. Patton I-ockwood, the director of the production, was asked for his comments yesterday, he replied, "I must admit it was with some hesitation I decided to present HAMIJ5T. It is Shakespeare's longest play and many consider it his most complex play. But last year I saw two performances of HAMLET which convinced me to give the play a try: a stunningly effective high school production touring out of the University School of Milwaukee, Wis., which demonstrated that young actors could handle the play superbly; and a ho-hum professional production in Washington, D. C, which convinced me that Ixmgwood could do better. To shorten the play from the three hours and forty-five minutes it runs when uncut down to the two hours plus that our production takes, only required a blue pencil, several weekends, and some ingenuity. Resolving the complexities of the play took longer. I have enjoyed working with this cast. I was fortunate in finding unusually strong actors for all of the major roles: Hamlet, Claudius, Gertrude,

Ophelia, Laertes, Polonius, Horatio; and solid character actors for the supporting roles. Emerson's setting for the action of the play is not only visually intriguing, it also contributes to the flow of the play's action allowing the many scenes of the play to proceed without interruption. I am planning to have only one intermission about three quarters of the way through the play. This type of play would challenge the strength of any production organization. The Players have as a group, and as individuals, supported the production . with their considerable experience and infectious enthusiasm. I am grateful." In HAMIJ5T, one of the most exciting moments in a physical sense comes at the end of the playwhen Hamlet and Laertes finally face each other, swords in hand. It is obvious that a large amount of production must go into creating this climactic scene. Tom Willis and Jeff Hix who portray Hamlet and I^aertes in the upcoming production in Jarman are, in addition to their regular rehearsals, working with the fencing choreographer, Mary Oilier, on the details of the match. The two duelists are being carefully guided step by step through each of the duel's complex moves. Filled with action, passion, and excitement, HAMLET is deservedly the world's most famous play. The Ixmgwood Players-Department of Speech and Dramatic Arts production runs from February 21 through 24, in Jarman Auditorium. Tickets are available at the box office in the lobby of Jarman Auditorium starting at 7:30 p.m. on the nights of production. The curtain goes up at 8 p.m.

Jersey, January 2 to stay with a friend. All to soon the day of departure came. We had made plans to fly Alleghany from Mercer County Airport to Washington, D.C., on their commuter flight where we would be met at 11:20 a.m. at National Airport by two other Ixmgwood students. Even though a wet snow had fallen and it was raining and foggy at takeoff, we made it to Philadelphia where we were to take on more passengers. After a 20 minute wait, we took off into the murky skies. We knew we would arrive at National a few minutes late and were looking forward to landing since the flight was bumpy and it was a SMAIX plane. No such luck. We flew over D.C., but were informed after circling innumerable times that we could not land and returned to Philadelphia. My friend and I had no earthly idea what we should do. We only knew we DID NOT wish to remain forever in Philly. After we got back most of our money we had invested on plane tickets and finally found our luggage, it was brought to our attention that both National and Byrd Airports were closed because of fog. Both of us had a definite adversion to long distance bus rides, so after nearly deciding to rent a car and drive down, we opted to take a chance on catching a train to Richmond. Thus we caught a bus to the train station on the opposite side of the

Tuesday, January 30,1979


city. For once we were lucky; a train was leaving in less than 45 minutes. It was a pretty relaxing ride. I particularly enjoyed my seat — right next to the Snack Bar (nothing like agitation to make my tummy growl!!) I also got to see some of the PittsburghHouston game on TV. A guy had brought along his TV. but the saga of my trip turned out to be more exciting. The train got to Richmond in five hours, we left at 3:00 p.m. and got to the Richmond Amtrak station at 8:00 p.m. Then we were faced with the dilemma of how to get to FARMVILLE. The only train here arrives in the morning. By this time we were both tired as we had left New Jersey about 9:30 a.m. We then used about $7.00 of change frantically calling Richmond area friends only to find they had already left for school. We also called the people in Farmville to tell them if we did not arrive by midnight to call out the huskies. Two taxi drivers looking for fares tried to take us for $40.00 and $35.00 (the later was willing to make a "sacrifice" in order to visit his mother in Farmville). We declined both offers as they were more than the train fare from Philadelphia. Then it was suggested we try the bus station as there WAS a bus leaving at 8:30. Mr. Mom in Farmville dropped us there — and, as our luck ran all day, the last bus had left an hour earlier Stranded again! Frustrated and not content to remain at the bus station, we

decided to see how much a taxi service would charge. The one we called wanted $75.00. You would think Farmville was off the beaten path! Well, we then called for the huskies. You really know who your friends are when they agree to come from Farmville to Richmond in nasty weather at night to pick you up in a not very safe part of the city. During all this time (12 hours to be precise), I had neglected to inform my parents of our difficulties and they had no idea where I had disappeared. Father Sherlock called New Jersey and discovered we had taken a train to Richmond. We did keep my friend's family posted on the means to leave Philadelphia. The train station informed him we had gone to the bus station, and the bus station paged me. It was a forgone conclusion he would not be delighted to be left in the dark about my whereabouts. He told me he had called the school several times only to be informed I had not materialized. He was glad I was safe and offered his services to Farmville, though I am sure he was relieved that help was on the way. Our rescuers returned us to our dorms around midnight. What a trip! We travelled on every means of transportation that day except a boat to return to Farmville! Maybe I will walk next time — it might be easier. We in-state students just do not know what ingenuity and effort is required. Of course one could ask nonresidents, "Why make the effort?"

Book Review:

Go Hire Yourself An Employer By JEANNE TRIMBLE Are you a senior at Longwood heading into the home stretch with a feeling of relief tempered by job hunting anxiety? Or, are you a person who wants to have a "judgement job," complete with self responsibility for your actions and other people? If so, GO HIRE YOURSELF AN EM-

PLOYER by Richard K. Irish should be at the top of your reading list. This is not a traditional "How to" book; rather it is a comprehensive plan of action for anyone who wants, or thinks he wants to work at a judgement job of his own choosing. The style of writing is personal, with the information presented in a question-answer format. Irish is at times humorous and always realistic. He lets the reader know at the outset that job hunting is work and that it is NOT a rational process (as many of us have already discovered). At times the information contained within does not appear heartening (such as his opinion that the purpose of a college education is

to "train persons for leisure"). One should "learn on the job." However, Irish counterbalances the negatives of this position by stating that a person's skills are important, and the ability to transfer these skills from one job to another constitutes the major portion of one's qualifications for a job. A key word in the job hunting techniques recommended in this work is ASSERTIVENESS. Irish claims that his book is "for people with strong egos (or who want them)." One must be able to recognize one's own potency | as opposed to ambition) so as to project one's efficiency. The focus of this book is upon choosing a judgement job to meet your own needs. There are few of these jobs in existence and the first step, according to Irish, is defining your needs and desires realistically. Do you really want a job in which there is both pain and pleasure? You will be just as responsible for your failures as your successes. If your answer is yes,then this book is for you. Irish covers topics ranging from determining specific goals, writing a functional (rather than traditional) resume, interviews, college vs. tiade school, working within the government, and the working woman. The conclusion, "Ten Things I Wish I had I>earned on my First Job" contains a summary of Irish's philosophy toward work (developed during periods of employment and unemployment). The opinion expressed is that an effective person i what you want to be) should learn to "feel free" on the job; free to learn, to stay, or to leave without impunity. He stresses constant learning and challenge as necessary components for a job in which you will find pleasure (if challenge is your style). You may be saying to yourself, "Who is this man to tell me how to acquire a job?" He is a counselor for the unemployed, who has had his share of grind jobs, unemployment and employment by others, as he says, he is in "the people business." Therefore, no matter who you are or where you are right now — if you are considering looking for a job don't ask someone to hire you; GO HIRE YOURSEIJ? AN EMPLOYER.

Lancers Win And Lose In One Point Thrillers By CHUCK COLE and KEVIN McGRAW Chuck Diachenko's bucket with six seconds left on the clock gave Greensboro an 83-82 victory over Longwood in basketball action here Saturday, January 20. The loss was a painful one for the Lancers, who had led throughout the second half until Diachenko sank his shot from 25 feet out. Ixmgwood quickly moved the ball downcourt in an attempt to score, but the Hornets intercepted a pass under the basket and held the ball as the final buzzer sounded. The first half had been close all the way, with the lead changing hands seven times and longwood ahead 52-49 at halftime. The Ixincers had increased their lead to nine points by 14:02 in the second half and still had this edge three minutes later. In the remaining minutes, however, Greensboro outscored I-ongwood 22-12, connecting on 10 field goals and two free throws. By the fiveminute mark, Greensboro trailed 78-75, and two minutes later buckets by Mike Drummond, Wendell Scott, and Diachenko had brought them within one point with the score 82-81, Ix)ngwood. Ix)ngwood's last real scoring opportunity came at 1:30 when a foul on Greensboro's I^arry Rice sent Kenny Ford to the free throw line. But Ford missed the bonus opportunity, and the lancers struggled in vain for possession of the ball. The statistics in the game were as close as the final score:

Longwood shot 63 per cent from the floor and 76 per cent from the line, while Greensboro shot 64 per cent and 73 per cent respectively. The Lancers had 15 turnovers compared to the Hornets' 10. Both teams had four players in double figures. Scoring and rebounding honors went to Longwood 'reshman Randy Johnson, who had 26 points and three grabs in the game. He was followed by teammates Shack Leonard with 20 points, and Kenny Ford and Kevin Newton with 10 each. Diachenko and Drummond led the Hornets with 24 and 23 points respectively. Mark Stafford and Damon Forney contributed 10 each. The Longwood Lancers returned to their winning ways in French Gym last Monday night by defeating the Saints of St. Mary's College by the score of 9282 A field goal by Al Murray and a free throw by Shack Leonard gave longwood a 3-0 lead by 18:22. However, St. Mary's press was successful in putting the Saints ahead 4-3 by 17:09. I/)ngwood struggled to catch up for the next 11 minutes of the game. Ron Thornhill scored a basket with 5:45 left in the first half, which knotted the score at 27. The Lancers and the Saints were tied only once more in the half. With the score 33 all, Murray slammed a shot through the basket, which inspired the lancers to achieve a 46-41 halftime lead. St. Mary's challenged for the

lead only one tune in the secondhalf when they drew within one point via a Hammond Willis basket with six minutes expired in the half. Longwood refused to buckle under to the pressure applied by St. Mary's and never relinquished the lead for the remainder of the game. The game was not error free. Kevin Newton and Ron Thornhill both fouled out for the Lancers. Guard Daryl McCrea followed suit for the Saint's of St. Mary's. Longwood committed 24 turnovers while St. Mary's only turned the ball over 15 times. Longwood once again demonstrated a balanced scoring attack with four I^ancers in double figures. Thomas (Tee) Alston lead the Lancer attack with 27 points. He was assisted by fellow teammates Shack Leonard with 19, Kevin Newton with 15, and Ron Thornhill with 10 points. The Saints were paced by Hammond Willis. The 6'3" forward pumped in 27 points, tying Tom Alston for game honors. He was aided by teammates Bobby Hill with 17, and Raynard Jones, who netted 10 points. According to Coach Ron Bash, his I/Migwood tancer Basketball team is fatigued, and there is no wonder as to why. The Lancers have been practicing everyday for the last three weeks. "This," says Bash, is the reason for the team's lack of intensity." Wednesday the Lancers traveled to Averett College for the second clash between these two teams this season. The Lancers played

spastic ball, one moment showing brilliance in execution, the next, showing inneptness. The biggest attraction of the game had to be Kenny Ford. The player who assistant coach Don Kelbick says is a "coach's dream" and is always trying to improve his game. Wednesday night, Ford did not appear to have too much room for improvement as he shot for 16 points and snatched eight rebounds. The last of those eight had to have been one of Kenny Ford's biggest rebounds in his career here. With 12 seconds left in the contest, the Lancers brought the ball in bounds and worked it into Shack Leonard

who shot with six seconds left. Leonard missed, but Ford, surrounded by Averett defenders got the rebound and put the ball in the hoop for the winning basket. The game was a tough defensive display by both schools as was indicated by the final score, 55-54. It is necessary to note that good sound coaching techniques were instrumental in the I.ancer victory. Shack Leonard and "Easy Tee" Alston were the Lancers next high scorers with nine points respectively. The lancers are now 11-5 on the season.

Lady Lancers Extinguish The Flames By DEBBIE NORTHERN The I^ady Lancer basketball team took two losses and a win this week to put their season record at 4-9. Playing a weak game, LC fell to the Radford Highlanders 88-54. At the half, the lancers were only down by 10, but in the second half \ÂŁ only hit 29 per cent from the floor to bring their total game percentage to 36. The Highlanders shot 58 and 53 per cent in field goals in the first and second halves respectively

for a 56 per cent game total. The Lancers committed 22 turnovers to the Highlanders' 15, but in rebounding and fouls both teams were practically even. Cindy Landon led the Longwood scoring with 16, followed by Brenda Fettrow with 12. The lancers' dynamic power ignited February 25 as LC easily quenched the Liberty Baptist Flames 80-35. Even though Liberty Baptist had a slight height advantage,

they could not put the ball through its hoop â&#x20AC;&#x201D; only shooting 25 per cent from the floor and 38 from the line. On the other hand, Longwood had 42 per cent from the floor and 90 from the line. The Lancers also controlled the boards, grabbing 43 to the Flames' 28. LC was led in this endeavor by Brenda Fettrow with eight, closely followed by Robin Hungate and Linda Pullen with seven each. To demonstrate LC's dominance, Liberty Baptist was unable to get past the lancer defense until 16:17, when they put in their first basket for an 18-2 score. The Lancers continued to drive around their defense to make it 24-4 at 13:26. The pressure defense employed by Longwood, besides thwarting the Flames' scoring drives and rebounding, also led to 35 turnovers against their opponents. In double figures for the Lancers were Brenda Fettrow with 16, Cindy Landon with 12, Robin Hungate with 10, Linda Pullen with 10, and Amy Gates with 10. The Lady Lancers lost a' physical game in Greenville, North Carolina, against East Carolina Saturday, 42-82. Longwood could not control the boards, only getting 31 rebounds to ECU'S 61. Brenda Fettrow pulled down seven rebounds for LC. Fettrow, along with Melissa Wiggins lead Longwood's scoring with 10 points each. Lori Grimm eyes the basket as she heads for two. The Lancers travel to Virginia State today. They return home to Photo by Debbie Northern host VCU Thursday at 7:00 p.m.

TR Majors Learn From Internships By SUSAN TOWLER The therapeutic recreation majors have two internships as part of their curriculum which are completed during their junior and senior years. The junior internship consists of ten weeks which earn the student ten credits. The senior internship lasts an entire semester and carries with it 18 hours of credit. These internships are done at a number of sites requiring special recreation. There are students working at alcoholic centers and others working at Veteran's Administration hospitals. According to the internship guidelines, "The internships provides a full-time learning laboratory with agencies delivering recreation and leisure

Netters Prepare For Season By BRENDA QUIRK Although freezing temperatures do not contribute to ideal tennis conditions, nineteen IiOngwood students are heartily preparing themselves for the coming season. The ladies began their conditioning on January 18 and will continue this training program until March 7. Only eight girls will be chosen for the team in March, but all must participate in this training to be considered. The prospective players meet every Tuesday and Thursday in the weight room for a series of exercises, while they independently prepare themselves for a three-mile run to take place in March. The girls are very enthusiastic about the coming tennis season. Mrs. Phyllis Harriss, who is coaching the team, is proud of the unity and determination of her prospective players. The ladies have the desire to win through unity, and exhibit the valuable ideals of sportsmanship. Although they will be competing against each other for positions on the team, the ladies take pleasure in encouraging one another to play at their best. The team has nine matches scheduled for this spring with the state tournament terminating their season. With the girls hard at work training for these matches, it appears that Ix)ngwood College will indeed have a very successful spring. Their dedication and harmony promotes the Longwood spirit of determination and good sportsmanship.

services to special populations." These special populations include the mentally retarded, the physically handicapped, the emotionally disturbed, the aged, and any groups of people requiring special recreational services. The junior, doing his or her internship, is concerned with observation of the department where it is being done. They also assist the department supervisor in administering recreational programs. The seniors, however, are actually considered professional members of the staff under the direction of the supervisor of the therapeutic recreation department. These students, even though they are away from academics, have their share of work to do. They must submit to the site supervisor a weekly activity report which includes all of their meetings, experiences, assignments, and any activities encountered as part of their

internship work. In addition, the intern is required to submit an overall evaluation of the internship at the end of the experience and to assemble a personal notebook of all acquired materials. A short-and long-term project are to be completed within this internship period. They involve a special activity coming together in a one-day program. A major project is another requirement of these interns. During an internship, a TR student can expect three on-site visits from either of the three departmental members, Mr. Brasile, Mr. Blair, and Mr. Cunningham. The students are given a final semester grade depending heavily on their supervisor's evaluation of their work during the internship. Therapeutic recreation majors indeed have their work cut out for them during their last two years at Longwood. The Rotunda staff wishes them all luck and success during their internships.

Grapplers Closely Contest HSC By FRANK CREASY The I.ancer grapplers have once again shown the stuff they are made of. I^ast Wednesday in Iler gym, the I^ancers put on a strong showing against archrival Hampden-Sydney, losing 36-17. However the score is not indicative of the closeness of the match. Longwood gave away 18 points in forfeits, giving the

Tigers an automatic advantage. Most everyone counted Ixmgwood out from the start; everyone, that is, except the Ix)ngwood wrestlers. After a forfeit at 118, Ken Gebbie, wrestling in place of 126-pounder Bob Hulsey, gained a 5-5 draw with his opponent. A penalty point in the second period cost Gebbie the win. In an exciting match at 134, Kurt Coffield gained a 6-5 decision win. Coffield, trailing by a point in the last round, used a takedown in the last 15 seconds to grab the victory. At 142, an aggressive Gary Ferris got six points for longwood with a second period pin. Ferris, after going ahead in the first round with a takedown, put his opponent on his back in the second and made it stick for the win. Following two Lancer losses at 150 and 158, Dan Richard got IiOngwood's last win of the night, nailing his opponent's scapulas to the mat in the second period. Asked about his team's performance, Coach Nelson Neal said, "Fantastic! This is the best we've wrestled. We keep getting better every match." Once more, the wrestlers are to be commended on a job well done

The Longwood Girl's Gymnastics Team lost their second meet of the season in what turned out to be a real pressure cooker. When the final score was tallied it showed East Carolina University on top 111.875-111.65. The gymnasts' routines were breath-taking right from the very beginning. Many of the girls from both sides attempted tricks that required a great amount of timing and concentration. To a lay person like myself the performances looked down right dangerous. Throughout each event, muffled sounds of aspiration could be heard from the crowd. The lancers as usual had more than their share of first and second place finishes. The amazing Kathy Idelson was the champion in all four of the individual events, vaulting, beam, floor exercise, and uneven bars. The assembly of students, parents, and teachers roared as Miss Idelson received an

impressive 8.0 on vaulting. Debi Kinzel, despite a foot injury suffered in a previous meet had an equally profitable day. She racked up second place finishes in both the vaulting and the uneven bars. The rest of the Longwood team should be commended for their effort and determination. Especially the freshmen, who continue to improve each time that they compete. The Longwood gymnasts seemed to outclass their opponents; nevertheless, the score Detween the two schools remained even. East Carolina University had a great deal of depth and was able to clinch the all important lower place finishes. They picked up 2nd and 3rd in the floor exercise to ensure themselves a victory. As the final score was announced, the spectators sat on the edge of their seats stunned and unable to fathom the outcome. Who could believe that our I^ancer had been defeated by a mere two tenths of a point?

Idelson Sweeps Events From Sports Information Longwood gymnast Kathy Idelson has been named Player of the Week for her outstanding performance in the Ixuicers' January 16 win over the University of Maryland (Baltimore). Idelson, a freshman from Annapolis, Maryland, swept the meet by taking first places in the vault, bars, beam, and floor exercise events as well as a first place in the all-around competition. She earned almost a third of the Lancers' team points in the meet, which Longwood won by a score of 95.85-93.80. "Her final score of 31.55 points proves the superiority of her performance," emphasized Longwood gymnastics coach Ruth Budd, who nominated Idelson for the award. Idelson is a graduate of Martin Spalding High School in Severn, Maryland, where she won the 1977 Top Ail-Around Gymnast Award. An advanced-level

gymnast, she was a five-year member of the Royal T's, a renowned private gymnastics team in Crofton, Maryland She is the daughter of Mr and Mrs. Robert M. Idelson of Annapolis.

Board Minutes By DEBBIE NORTHERN In the January 22 Legislative Board meeting, old business included that Pi Kappa Phi has volunteered to be an escort service, as 50 per cent of the student body did not feel safe at night according to a recent poll. A memo has been sent informing desk aids that they can use the intercom to call women in female dorms and men in male dorms. It was also brought up that an announcement time needed to be established whereby clubs and organizations could make pertinent announcements. The Legislative Board, in connection with Residence Board, is going to check to see if the locked doors in Tabb are a fire hazard. Under new business, the IAA, ('(institution was approved and putting up Honor Code signs in classrooms were discussed.
